So this weather we’ve been having lately has been AH-mazing!!  Upper 50s and 60s, (mostly) sunny–Such a welcome relief from the rainy/grey winter!  M, Lilly and I have really made good use of our weekends, these last couple weeks, and have taken quite a few walks either on the walking trail close to our house, or through some of the other townships here in Cincinnati (I post quite a bit on my Instagram stories!).

Since we’ve made long walks a part of our normal routine, it gave me a good excuse to try out the sneaker trend that’s been popular the last couple of years…And as a (new) mom who is on the go, often with a baby and gear in tow, running around in pumps isn’t always practical (major props to you mamas who do!).

So when I saw this blush quilted pair at Target, I knew they had to come home with me! 😀  I actually didn’t know until after I posted them on my Instagram stories and someone told me that they were a copy of the sneakers by Steve Madden—and HALF the price!!   Read More

Happy February, friends!

Wow, I cannot believe I just typed that last sentence–does anyone else feel like January went by unusually fast??

I’ve been scrolling through my Instagram feed, recently (ok, when am I not scrolling through it?), and I’m getting the same vibe from everyone; we’ve had enough of winter, and are more than ready for spring to arrive!

I know, I know, it’s only February 3rd (!!!), just halfway through winter, but I’m desperate for warmer temps and sunny days! Read More

Stuck in Neutral

I have a confession to make–I am kind of stuck in a neutral…both in blogging and getting dressed every day.

The blog thing is because of all that has happened these last three months (baby, moving, vacation to Germany), and I’m ever so slowly getting back into the groove (I promise I’ll get a post up about our trip, soon!!).

Getting dressed is another issue, because I have seemingly overstocked my closet with neutrals, this winter.

Well I certainly did not think I would get this far, but here I am!  One week past my  due date, and Baby Girl is still cozied up inside.   We’ve tried just about everything in the book to induce labor, walking, bouncing on an exercise ball (I’ve bounced so much on it, that it’s starting to go flat!), spicy foods, hot baths, cinnamon stick tea….aaand nada.

Each day, I find a new level of discomfort, a new level of tired, and a new level of being over it.   Read More

Favorite Pieces from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

nordstrom anniversary saleHappy Weekend, friends!

If you’re like me, then you’ve probably been eyeing quite a few pieces from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but wondering whether or not to pull the trigger.  I decided to round up some pieces that I purchased last year from Nordstrom that ended up being staples in my fall and winter wardrobe!  Remember when I said I missed out on  last year’s sale?  Because of that, I ended up paying full-price for these items AND some were on backorder for a few weeks 🙁
